Windows 10: HDD not working with Enclosure
HDD not working with Enclosure
I had an old laptop that wouldn't boot, so someone replaced my HDD and gave me the bad one back. They didn't explain what was wrong with it.
A few months ago I bought and enclosure (ORICO 2588US3) to use the HDD with my current PC running Windows 10. When I plug it in, it makes the USB connect sound, nothing else appears. After a short time it appears in the Device Manager, but not on the Disk Management, when it does it just appears for less than a second, with a red dot somewhere.
The old HDD is a Toshiba HDD2E63 250 GB Internal HDD - 2.5" - MK2556GSY - SATA.
I want to know if I am still able to fix it, if so, how can I do it.
Thanks in advance.
If the HDD is bad your not going to fix it. If there is data on the drive that you need to copy you could try freezing the drive for about 30 minutes. Then install the drive back into the enclosure and see if it can be read. If it can copy as much of your data as you can to another drive.
I looked at the drive case on Amazon, see that it requires a USB 3.0 port on the computer and does not include a power supply, must take what it needs from the USB 3.0 ports. Some of the older Notebook drives needed more than 1Amp power and may not be getting enough through the USB 3.0. I mostly use such cases that come with a Y-cable to plug into USB 2.0 ports, one leg for power and data and the other leg for additional power when needed. I found about the power issue by reading the label on the 2.5" drive when one didn't work.
Thanks for the help!
I will try it and see what happens.
Get a POWERED usb3 hub with 4 or so ports. most are backward compatible with usb2 and avoid the need for 2-cable ones of which i have 2 and don't like'm.
MK... internal Toshiba drive is likely to work just fine.
I'm needing more HDD storage.
Can't decide whether dedicated NAS storage -- expensive -- even 2 bay (empty no HDD supplied) costs around 150 - 200 USD or use a much cheaper external storage box with SATA/ USB3 connectors.
